You can tell how many changes this film has undergone since it’s first development art and the current animation being done for it. You can see the difference in the model design for the fisherman. I also earlier had a dog in the story, but as things go, the dog seemed more and more irrelevant to the story. Also Annie, the wife character, developed some curl to her hair.
One of the really positive aspects of independent film, and “calling an audible” on the drawing table. Changing a play after you see how things are setting up. I lay out a scene, but once I start animating it, at times I know it’s not going to work. Or rather, it would work, but a change would make it work better.
Not sure what happened to winter here in southern California. Maybe other parts of the country can share the wealth.
